At the grave of a fisherman

Emma and I popped up the A303 for a couple of days. First day, we had a look around Winchester. It is a really nice city with a cathedral just round the back of the town centre. Now, I have to hold my hands up and say I am not a wander round church, or in this case, cathedral, sort of person but I had remembered that Izaak Walton is buried in the cathedral along with a cool stained glass window. So, after a great lunch we had a look around the cathedral and eventually found the grave and window. I can’t claim it was a pilgrimage but it was good to go visit a grave of someone who has had one of the biggest impacts on fishing…ever.

We stayed over and next day I met up with my good friends Jim Williams and Ian May to catch a few grayling, take a few pics and talk about Eat, Sleep Fish. They have both been instrumental in it from the beginning and we thought we should have a meet up and chat things through since we unleashed Issue 1 on the world.

They are both excellent fishermen and photographers too and Ian came armed with just his camera gear as the weather was so good. Jim and I caught some fish and even a few on dries, which was fun. We talked, laughed a lot and have some great things planned for the future. Issue 2 will see the start of this and I promise it will be worth it!

I am going to release #2 at the end of the month and there is some great stuff in it, not just from the U.K., but around the world too and it’s looking really, really good.
